A few hours ago, I published a post making a nice addition to The Best Resources For Finding And Creating Virtual Field Trips.

I took this opportunity to also update The Best Sites Where Students Can Plan Virtual Trips.

A nice geography lesson is to have students plan a trip to some location (or locations). There are several web tools on that list which make doing this pretty easy — it’s just a matter of identifying where you want to go, looking through the sites to see in those places, and then “dragging-and-dropping” them onto a list that you can subsequently post on a student or teacher website/blog. Most of these sites also allow you to write a description of your trip (and why you chose the places you did), but students can do the same on their own site, too.
